“The key was Collaboration and to see how much we can achieve with collaboration really changed me. It was important for me to be in this film because of the message. Nigeria is a dynamic great country, it’s a country where the people are challenging themselves. This is an example of how they challenged themselves and succeeded. I’m so proud to be a part of it” – Hollywood actor, Danny Glover (Played Dr Ohiaeri).

      I’m actually confused now and can’t keep up. Thanks for listing the films cos all I can remember now is TIFF and not the different movie names. These are all Nigerian movies debuting in Toronto which is great, but can someone explain why? Is it to reach us in Nigeria or take Nigerian movies to the world? If so I hope these films get picked up by international distributors. Looking forward to the Nigerian premieres, London, Cannes and Los Angeles.

    I really admire Steve Gukas and his work! His focus on true life people and events is remarkable! I will be seeing the movie at House on Rock tomorrow, yay!!! Congratulations to the cast and crew, my silent wish, that the Adedovoh family align with the movie. It would be cool to see her son attend these events and truly see how people appreciate what his mom has done for our nation. Continue to RIP Stella?

    I can always trust Bimbo Akintola to do right by me. One of the few artists who thoroughly reads her scripts before accepting to star in them. High quality work all around. And even if the movie turns out poorly, her acting will always make up for it! True thespian. Rita Dominic and Kate Henshaw are very close behind.
